On a personal note

I have always felt that if you can do something to help someone else, you should do it. Working in water and using the skills I have developed allows me to positively affect many people. Water is an extremely important commodity that all living things need. I strive to deliver quality work in a timely fashion, and I love that each project we do is important and will make a positive impact in the world. I enjoy putting my mind to work and a challenge. Working in this field is full of diverse clients, people and projects. Each day is something different and a learning opportunity to expand my knowledge, skills and network. I enjoy being part of a team that makes a difference in the world through our services and designs. I look forward to collaborating and working with creative and talented individuals who constantly strive to be the best and reach the next level.

Outside of WSC, I like to spend my time cooking and trying new recipes, hiking and spending quality time with close family and friends. My current favorite recipe is steak bites with a chimichurri sauce (which is similar to an Argentinian Pesto), and my choice for dessert is always some type of chocolate ice cream.
